Did you know that we provide a nutritious meal daily to over 140 children with unemployed parents?
Lethabong is our local informal settlement, which comprises over 300 shacks and semi permanent houses.
After becoming aware of a large number of households where the parents are unemployed, we, together with The Waldorf School, decided to start a feeding scheme in October 2013.
The objective is to provide one nutritious meal per day to the children of these households.
We prepare the meals for the children in our boarding school kitchen. We then transport the prepared food to Lethabong and dish up for the children.
We are grateful for the following donors:
* ROUND TABLE PRETORIA (to date we have received over 175 boxes of Nova Sun bananas)
* ROUND TABLE PRETORIA (120 plastic cups and plates for the children)
* SERVE THE CITY (300 pairs of comfortable shoes)
* SPAR AND THEIR SUPPLIERS (massive donation of vegetables, fresh and baked goods like cakes, muffins, rusks etc.)
